Sheesh...
It also seems to me that there is a trajectory change at around 1-1.5 million people for most metros. Completely a feeling, but it seems like when a city / metro hits that range there is a definite growth rate jump, at least for a while.
Can anyone confirm or deny? Are there any studies of urban planning theories used for something like population size driven immigration?
Like Titos, I can't confirm or deny that one.. But I get the same sense you do.. Perhaps the annual US Census "lowball" of Omaha's metro estimate will change once we hit/surpass the 1 million population mark...
I see what you're saying but also there are metros past 1 million that are mostly stagnant Memphis, Dayton, Albany, Albuquerque, Rochester and Hartford.
